My story

[p]Hello everyone - thanks for visiting my latest fundraising page![/p][p]After a break from fundraising challenges in 2014 (although I did sneak in a non-fundraising length of Windermere swim!), I'm back in 2015 with my biggest challenge yet - a 2 way Windermere swim.  I.e. I'm going to get in at one end of the lake, swim down to the other end, turn around and come back which is 34k/21 miles in total and probably around 11 hours of swimming.  Even my 2013 half ironman didn't take that long![/p][p]I've always been keen on supporting Mind since my close friend Emily took her life in 2009.  I've had my own share of mental health problems along the way and am grateful to the work of Mind for making it easier to speak out about them.  In the last year or so I have been particularly unwell, so having a challenge like this to focus on and hopefully achieve is a big boost to my mental health.[/p][p]If I can raise £2264 this will take the total amount that I have raised for Mind since 2009 to £15k - I appreciate this is an ambitious target but every £ helps.  Mind continue to provide excellent support to people with mental health problems, for example with their info line, as well as campaign for care and services to meet the needs of people experiencing mental health problems.  As someone who spent 15 months on a waiting list for talking therapy I can see how much this campaigning is sadly needed.  Please give as generously as you can![/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.][/p]
